" In a sense everything that is exists to climb. All evolution is a climbing towards a higher form. Climbing for life as it reaches towards the consciousness, towards the spirit. We have always honored the high places because we sense them to be the homes of gods. In the mountains there is the promise of... something unexplainable. A higher place of awareness, a spirit that soars. So we climb... and in climbing there is more than a metaphor; there is a means of discovery." -Rob Parker.

Re: Tholung Trek Information 5 years, 5 months ago #693

Tholung valley trek is a good idea. Here is some information about it.. Tholung valley in North Sikkim is home to the ethnic Lepcha community. It is a protected area. Dense forested slopes high above the Tholung valley are home for the Lepchas. The trek up this stunning forested valley leads to higher alpine valleys below the snow capped mountains of the Kanchenjunga range. You have to start from Bagdogra or Phuentsoling/ Bhadrapur airport and the best season for Tholung valley trek is between March-June and October-November. The trekking ranges from easy to moderate and maximum altitude is 2600m. Tholung trek is very rewarding as you can get to see many relics and antiques collected from other monasteries for preservation. Many of these relics are displayed every three years specially on a appointed day.
